    It was very clean and nice and quiet.

    The bed was s little hard , but that's just me and my sore back.

    Laundry closes by 9, can understand logic if it’s near to rooms but not the case. So if you checkin late or checkin after a long day you can’t do laundry

    They provide extra blankets and hot water bottles for your comfort which is a nice touch. Some of the original features and historical information is very interesting.

    I understand renovating an old prison into a hostel and keeping some original details and historical stories...however jailhouse accomodation uses this theme as a gimmick which is uncomfortable and disrespectful. Staff are referred to as wardens and guests as inmates...you can also dress up as prisoners to have your picture taken. The whole thing is distasteful. Would also say it is an old prison so it's really cold and the wifi doesnt reach through the walls to the rooms. This old building could work well as a hostel minus the distasteful gimmicks.

    Loved the look of the property - really kept the feel and set up of the jail and rooms. Staff are all super nice and helpful! Location was just what I expected and is near the Addington Coffee Co-op which is a fantastic coffee shop.

    Bathrooms were a bit grim. Doors for jail cells/dorm rooms a bit hard to unlock (from the outside!).

    It's a fun place to stay if you're into quirky hostels. I like that you can read about the history of the jail and there's a few rooms that hve been kept as they were when it was an active prison. You can also dress up and take a mugshot by the a feature wall.
